2011 Ducati Diavel: First official photograph

The 2011 Ducati Diavel. "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil..."

Ducati have released the first official photograph of the new Diavel, which will be unveiled at the EICMA Show in Milan in November this year. Ducati claim the bike is ‘evil, like the devil,’ though we aren’t entirely convinced. Lardy, slow-handling cruisers aren’t Ducati’s thing…

In any case, the 2011 Ducati Diavel, which weighs 207 kilos, is fitted with the Bolognese company’s superbike-derived Testastretta L-Twin, ABS and traction control. At around 150-160 horsepower, the Diavel probably wouldn't accelerate as hard as a Yamaha VMAX, but we suppose if you always wanted an Italian-built muscle-cruiser, your wish might come true very soon. We’ll stick with the 1198SP though, thanks very much.

Yet more proof Ducati are losing the plot. Stick to making sportsbikes which you do so well and stop trying to make a bike to suit all tastes.
